Make hemichromis bimaculatus and female roccio octofasciata. Tell it's a male based on the extended finnage. Can tell its a female Dempsey based on the exaggerated spangling on the cheek

Awesome now if I were to try to breed them how does that process work. Not going to be done any time soon no space and the male I don't think is close to breeding age.

You do realize these aren't the same species, let alone genus, or even continent, right? They're not going to breed.

Yeah, you have a hemichromis bimaculatus, aka jewel cichlid, and a roccio octofasciata, aka jack dempsey cichlid. First is african riverine, second is central american.

They were probably both in the same tank because they both like soft water I was just a fish store that did the same thing and I have one in with my dempsey
